One thing I have been convinced of is that SS will eventually be means-tested--

It darn well better not be means tested!!!! What the heck have I been paying all this money all these years for if not to get it back when I am 62 or 67 or whatever? Does this mean if I spend all my money and live check to check, then because I was stupid I get SS, but if I was smart and saved and invested I don't get it?

Grrrrrrrrrr. If you are right and this happens, there will be an uprising from the SS payers like you will not believe. There are few things that get me fired up politicalkly, but this would be one of them. Clean air and water is another.
